The future is here and it’s electric
When it comes to electric vehicles, one name still rises above the rest: Tesla Motors. The California-based automaker gets all the buzz because they’ve proven that EVs can be appealing, exciting, and powerful.
Driving a Tesla is a whole different experience than driving a traditional car. If you’ve never been behind the wheel, you can find Tesla rental alternatives here on Turo to get a full sample of the electric lifestyle.
Tesla is the biggest name in electric vehicles because they were the first to make them appealing to the masses. They’ve won car buyers over with impressive battery range, cutting-edge tech, and a novelty factor that still hasn’t worn off.
The Tesla design language is one of sleek minimalism, both inside and out. Tesla models famously come with one giant touchscreen that controls just about every function inside the cabin — no more buttons, knobs, or dials.
Long gone are the days of small puttering EVs. Tesla makes some of the quickest-accelerating production cars on the planet, thanks to instant electric torque from their giant batteries — especially with Ludicrous Mode.
Curious about all the Tesla hype? Want to know what it’s like to drive and live with an electric vehicle? Book a Tesla here on Turo and test drive it for a few days to get a sense of what the electric life is like. You can test out charging a Tesla at your home, at your office, or at charging stations around town.
The smallest and most affordable Tesla is the Model 3, a compact sedan that comes at an accessible price but still has all the Tesla toys. The Tesla Model 3 Performance comes with dual motors and can accelerate to 60 in 3.2 seconds!
The Model S was the first mass-produced Tesla model, and helped launch the company into legitimacy among consumers. The seven-seat sedan is a top-notch luxury vehicle that just happens to run on electricity.
Falcon wing doors! There’s a lot to love about Tesla’s incredibly fast and exceptionally capable SUV, but besides the P100D’s Ludicrous Mode acceleration, the Tesla Model X’s dramatic falcon wing doors are the most exciting party piece.
Best Tesla Rental in the San Francisco/Bay Area. Looking forward to renting from Dan again! - JW
Great car for winter... Set up for Tahoe trips with genuine winter tires (not the m+s tires that some people claim are winter) combined with AWD and the Tesla advantage (fastest reaction for traction control) make this the best car for snow trips in California in any rental car. The roof rack is useful as well although I want skiing on this trip and didn't use it. The Tesla itself is of course a great car, long range but small enough to still fit through San Francisco streets. Drop off and pick up was pretty painless at the long term parking.
Amazing trip loved San Francisco ‼️ Had a great time and enjoyed my first experience in a Tesla
This Tesla was a great deal, extremely comfortable and the best car for driving on steep San Francisco hills. Tony was very helpful and flexible. Directions were clear and the car was perfect. Great experience.
I have to say my First time utilizing this service. And I love it. It was simple easy transaction and Monk the owner of the Car. the car was just amazing by explaining how the car works and by giving me a full description and really talking me through the how to use the car. If you are a first time Tesla driver that is. Amazing Service from Car owner. This is something you must do in San Francisco rent a Tesla, feel like you are really in the San Francisco area.
Joseph's Tesla was a real delight to drive. Smooth and luxurious for sure. The car is immaculate and Joseph did a great job of walking us through the different settings in the car. Joseph was also very accommodating to our schedule. When I come back to San Francisco I will definitely be driving Tessy again.
We had a great time in San Francisco with Dan’s Tesla. The car was clean and easy to drive. My first experience driving a electric car is amazing. Thank you and hope to see you again soon.
Awesome! Rented John's Tesla for a cruise from San Francisco to Monterey for a long weekend. It was so good. Turo Valet a convenient but I would not hesitate to arrange meeting the host at another location if it makes more sense. Turo is the future.
As a first time Tesla user, I throughly enjoyed the experience of driving Jasmit’s Tesla for the day in San Francisco. Jasmit (Jesse) is a fantastic communicator and very punctual. I would not hesitate in recommending the experience to drive a Telstra.....it’s very different but so cool. Only a five would be to figure out in advance where to find supercharge areas as it can be a pain to find.
Leopoldo was a superb host! Very communicative. Everything went as planned. His Tesla was brand new and amazing to drive. I noticed that this was among the most popular cars in San Francisco- Model 3s everywhere. And I see why. It’s the perfect car for the streets of SF as you need to parallel park a lot and also good for Lombard aka Crooked Street lol - and nice to avoid the gas pump. My family and I did a ton of site seeing and we all enjoyed the car. We even put the caraoke to use and the fart feature made us all laugh 😂 You’ll see lol! All in all it was a fantastic experience!! I highly recommend Leopoldo and his Tesla! You won’t regret it!!
Very smooth experience. Monk meets up with you and helps u with the car in case you don’t have experience with Teslas. Drop off was just as smooth. Would rent again. Clean car. Runs great.
I rented this Tesla for a long weekend and found just how comfortable they are on long drives. I went up north from San Francisco and all through the redwoods of Northern California. I’m so glad I got the extended range on the Model 3 because there were times that I followed a canyon road just to enjoy a few more miles. And then a few more... You get the idea. I was still always within a good rage to return to a charging station. So this Tesla was the perfect introduction to riding long trips with electric cars. As for Ryan himself? Well, Ryan exemplifies exactly what a Turo renter should be: 1. Clear, safe, and concise communication from the start. 2. Additional options to cover any type of trip (the added game controllers were great) 3. Clearly passionate about electric cars and the care shows throughout the ride Conclusion: if you are interested is renting any Tesla here, make sure to rent with Ryan first.
Leopoldo is an amazing host. He was very responsive and ready to help. The instructions were great for both experienced and new Tesla drivers. The car itself was immaculate and a breeze to drive! Will definitely recommend and rent again!
Rented Aaron’s car for a week to travel to Yosemite. The Tesla was a highlight of our trip, making the travel a joy. Aaron made pickup and drop off an ease and was very responsive. Highly recommend the car and renting from Aaron!
Anthony and his Tesla were great. Super easy to rent, a simple process, and the car was so enjoyable! Highly recommend.
Jesse’s Tesla was very clean, in super good condition and very nice to drive. Jesse was very attentive and informative, there wasn’t anything he forgot to explain to help with from how to drive the car to where exactly in the airport garage it was parked. Definitely a recommendation and would 100% rent again!
Dan made the pickup/drop off process very easy. His car provides an excellent experience navigating through San Francisco. He also provides access to cell phone features to make using the car a lot more convenient.
Thank You Michael for the car you rented we loved it and enjoyed just a request next time please give us abit clean
Great service from Philip. They do know how to take care of their renters. I will Definitely rent this car again! Thank you
Excellent. Host is a great communicator. Brought the car the night before to be sure I had it. Also rented to me for just the day. Super accommodating and responsive to questions / unfamiliarity with EV. Thanks bro
Car was great and impeccably clean! Leopoldo was very responsive and professional. Pick-up and drop-off were smooth and easy. This was my first Turo rental and I could not have been happier!!
Matthew was great, The car was great, amazing trip all around. Will definitely rent again.
First time using Turo and renting a Tesla. Really easy and fun experience. Will rent from Ryan again.
Jerry’s Model 3 was a pleasure to drive and had all the bells and whistles for the full Tesla experience. Jerry was the most attentive host ever. He made everything beyond easy. We booked last minute, but he still sent us some primer videos on the basic operation of the Model 3. He brought the car directly to us, outside baggage claim and met us at the departure area, when we were heading home. Highly recommended!
Eric was a great host. Super responsive and the car was nothing short of amazing. Will rent from him again!
Dan's Tesla model 3 is a great value! He made it seamless to check in and get going! He offered me guest access to the Tesla app which made using this car 20x more enjoyable, I loved being able to summon the car and set the interior to 63 degrees! When im back in the area I will definitely keep Dan in my favorites! ***HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!***
Michelle provided a great rental experience. Professional and courteous, going above and beyond including sanitizing wipes and a bottle of water. Would recommend to anyone looking to rent a Tesla.
Fun to take this new Tesla out for the weekend. If this is your first drive in a Tesla there is a learning curve, like going from PC to Mac. The car is mint condition and your host is reliable and responsive. If you are a Tesla enthusiast, I recommend this car and host.
Daniel was a great host. Highly recommend, I travel to San Francisco frequently and will definitely rent again!
Monk made it so easy to pick up and drop off the car. The Tesla was clean and fun to drive. He answered all questions and made our trip run so smoothly! Will definitely rent the Tesla from him again and check out his other cars!
Zara is so kind and accommodating. She will assist you so willingly and nicely. The car was perfect. We loved our trip.
Ryan was a great host. Quick to respond to messages, friendly, and the car was fantastic too!
Very fun and beautiful car. James was so amazing, helpful and kind. Would go though again!! Great weekend getaway!
Mason was an amazing host! Very professional, kind and took the time to review the car! Highly recommend!!
Tyler was very helpful with getting me situated with the car - very detailed, punctual, and responsive. The car was also very clean and the interface was easy to figure out. Highly recommend!
The car is great, everything went smooth, Zia was a great host and I will defiantly recommend and will be reaching out when we are back in town. Thank you for the car! It defiantly made our trip better.
Zara was very helpful prior to our trip and attentive at helping answer any quick questions along the way. The car was very smooth to drive.
I loved Dan's car, and he takes extra care of his guests. Loved the entire experience.
Super easy to coordinate everything. He was so responsive and helpful. Amazing car and in very good condition.
Michelle was great to deal with. She’s extremely flexible and understanding. I would use Michelle’s Tesla in the future!
Ryan and the Tesla were great. Pickup and drop off were a breeze, and Ryan was available to answer all of my questions. Charging was super easy with plenty of stations around the Bay Area.
Great car, amazing experience! Jesse was super helpful, he answered all of my questions.
Took the car for the weekend to Napa and loved it! Raymond was also exceptionally accommodating to extend our trip when we missed our flight. He’s also very punctual. Thanks, Raymond!
This was my first time using Turo. If this is typical I will definitely consider doing again. Ramsey was fantastic. Being a newbie, I had tons of questions and he was super responsive. Communication was super easy. The car was clean and very fun.
Fantastic experience. Jasmit was communicative and helpful throughout. Car was clean, exactly where it was supposed to be, and a lot of fun!
Mr. Saeid T, was very kind. communicative and help in the solution of assistance to solve a problem with the car tire. Excellent service, I would be willing to request it again when I return to that city.
Michael’s Model 3 rocks! It’s a lot of fun to enjoy in chill mode. It is also surprisingly fast & fun in standard mode! This is a great way to travel the Bay Area, with plenty of Tesla superchargers around to keep it charged!
